Did you know that coffee, when taken in the form of an enema, is one of the best ways of detoxifying the body? While the majority of people nowadays are bound to find the practice a tad bit strange, many holistic health specialists are quick to recommend it and for a good reason.
Why detox with coffee?
In this piece, we will take a good look at what is a coffee enema and how it works. More importantly, we look into some of its notable benefits and what it can do for you. Only then can you decide whether it is indeed the ultimate detox solution for you.
A little history about coffee colon cleanse
Now while you may have only heard about coffee enemas recently, the practice itself is actually thousands of years old. Records of it exist in many of the old medical texts especially during the time of ancient Egypt and Greece. Following the downfall of said ancient civilisations, the practice fell into obscurity, and it was not until the 1930’s that enemas began to captivate people’s interest as a holistic detox treatment.
The then renowned German-American physician Dr Max Gerson put coffee enemas on the map by making good use of it in as an alternative cancer treatment which was eventually named after him (The Gerson Therapy).
The benefits of a coffee enema detox
As the term already suggest, the procedure calls for the use of organic coffee taken in the form of an enema. While it is not okay to drink coffee while detoxing due to its’ acidic properties, coffee enemas affect the body in an entirely different way. ?The coffee itself is a known antioxidant which is one of the reasons why people love drinking it. However, coffee works even better as an antioxidant if taken as an enema. How is this so?
Unlike what a detox tea does for you and other detox supplements that people take orally, coffee enemas have a direct effect on the liver and the body more readily absorbs rich concentrations of caffeine through the rectum.
Upon reaching the liver, ?caffeine begins to detoxify the body in various ways:
- Coffee contains enzymes that boost liver functions improving its ability to filter out toxins from the blood stream
- Caffeine accelerates bile production in the liver and causes the waste ducts to dilate temporarily ?making it that much easier for the body to rid itself of embedded waste and toxins
Caffeine introduced directly to the liver yield the desired effect of boosting glutathione levels in the skin. The latter is an S-transferase enzyme that fights free radicals in the body and well known for its’ desirable benefits on the skin.
Considering the benefits mentioned above, it is no wonder then that majority holistic experts widely regard coffee enemas as the ultimate detox solution for the liver.
